Did you know that even one missing tooth can change your face? Over time, the jawbone and gum tissue that support and shape facial features deteriorate creating wrinkles, indentations, and sagging. Even patients who wear traditional dentures experience these changes because the root of the tooth actually stimulates the retention of gum tissue and bone density. Traditional tooth replacement options only restore the visible parts of teeth, but dental implants replace the entire tooth from the roots up. That means patients are better able to retain gum tissue and bone density, and maintain their youthful appearance. At South Shore Dental Care, we offer the dental implants Massapequa residents prefer. Our skilled dentists, friendly team, and patient-centered care make us the ideal dental implant dentist for all of Long Island. Call to schedule a dental implant evaluation today.

How Porcelain Veneers Work
Our office prides itself on offering our patients the widest array of dental treatment options, and this includes our cosmetic dentistry services. If you are interested in having porcelain veneers placed to correct your smile esthetics, our highly skilled dentists will start by explaining the numerous options our practice can provide.
Traditional porcelain veneers require two visits. An initial consultation/examination visit allows our staff to examine your teeth and determine whether veneers are a good option to correct your bite. If you and your dentist determine that veneers are right for you, molds will be made of your teeth so a customized veneer can be milled. At South Shore Dental Care we work with the renowned dental ceramist, Jason J. Kim to produce the highest quality natural looking and feeling veneers available. Once your custom veneer is ready, you’ll come in for your second visit to place the veneer.
For patients who need minimal-prep or no-prep veneers, we work with several of the leading ultra-thin veneer brands: Lumineers, DaVinci Veneers and Durathins. These brands offer similar look and function to the traditional porcelain veneer, and still require two dental visits one to take molds of your teeth and one to apply your custom veneer. However, these veneer options are made of extremely thin layers of porcelain so less tooth preparation is needed to place the veneers.
Who Should Consider Veneers
If you have chipped, cracked or broken teeth, veneers can be a less invasive treatment option that traditional crowns to correct smile esthetic. If you have dental damage caused by tooth decay, veneers help protect against future cavities or bacteria. Patients who are not healthy enough to undergo complex dental procedures like crown and bridge therapy or dental implants, are usually able to have veneers placed with no adverse health effects. Any patient who isn’t happy with the smile they have, but doesn’t have the time or budget to undergo extensive dental restoration treatments will benefit from porcelain veneers.
Schedule an Appointment
Whatever the reason you’re considering porcelain veneers, our expert staff can help you make a dental care decision that’s right for you. A consultation with one of our skilled cosmetic dentists will thoroughly explain your options, and give you the opportunity to hear about other dental treatments to correct your bite. If you’re in need of cosmetic dentistry treatment or any dental care, our convenient Massapequa Park practice is here to help. Call to schedule a consultation today. Our practice welcomes patients form surrounding areas including Long Island, Merrick, Bellmore, and Wantagh.

What Can Cosmetic Bonding Do For Your Smile?
Dr. Stutman can use cosmetic bonding material to easily improve the color, shape, and arrangement or your teeth in just one office visit. Cosmetic bonding is incredibly versatile and requires very little preparation. It can be sued to correct discolored or chipped teeth, close spaces or gaps between teeth, elongate teeth, or change their shade and form.
How Does Cosmetic Bonding Work?
First, Dr. Stutman will place a thin, clear plastic film between the tooth to be bonded and neighboring teeth. Next, a mild chemical will be applied to the tooth to give it a rough texture. This helps the composite resin bond with the enamel of your tooth. The composite resin that matches closest to the color of your natural tooth is then chosen. Dr. Stutman will then apply the composite resin in layers. A special curing light is used to harden each layer. After the last layer of composite resin is hardened, Dr. Stutman will shape and polish the material to blend perfectly with your tooth. The finished tooth will look completely smooth and natural.
Dr. Stutman understands that a bright and healthy white smile is an asset. That’s why we offer a cost efficient way to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Make an appointment with the highly qualified cosmetic dentists of South Shore Dental Care today for your cosmetic bonding smile makeover.
